Malaysian Arrested in Connection With 2003 Jakarta Hotel Bombing - 2004-10-07


Police in Indonesia have arrested a Malaysian national in connection with last year's suicide bombing at a Jakarta luxury hotel.

A police spokesman says Saptu Roni is accused of withholding information about the August 2003 blast at the J.W. Marriott hotel that killed 12 people.

More than a dozen people have been arrested or convicted over the bombing. Authorities say the regional militant group Jemaah Islamiyah is to blame for the attack.
